"So far, I’m impressed by the elegance of the writing, which takes dry accounts and records and gives you the lives being depicted, and by the stated opinion, “The value of any activity is determined by its meaning to the participant, not to its observer.” So many historians try to inflict modern values on historic lives."

Lao Tzu
“We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.”
Lao Tzu

Leonard Cohen
“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.”
Leonard Cohen

Oliver Sacks
“Every act of perception, is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination.”
Oliver Sacks, Musicophilia: La musique, le cerveau et nous

Diane Ackerman
“I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.”
